Welcome to the Comiclopedia, an illustrated compendium
of over 13,900 comic artists from around the world. Find your favorite
artists, or discover new ones!
Online since 1 November 1999, the Comiclopedia is the world's largest
overview of comic artists, and the brainchild of comic shop Lambiek's
founder Kees Kousemaker
(1942-2010). Kees was at the vanguard of promoting comics as art, and
both the Lambiek store and the website are continuing in his spirit. The
editors of the Comiclopedia are Bas Schuddeboom and Kjell Knudde.
Traditional African masks are one of the elements of great African art that have most evidently influenced Europe and Western art in general; in the 20th century, artistic movements such as cubism, fauvism and expressionism have often taken inspiration from vast and diverse heritage of African masks. Influences of this heritage can also be found in other traditions such as South- and Central American masked Carnival parades.(Wikipedia)
